Statement of  Mr John Carras  Greek Rowing Federation President :

"This is a very good initiative to help both countries to maintain close sporting links. I believe it will become an institution because our goal is to have continuation to this initiative.

Certainly the race interest is not in the first line but it is still an international Athletic event. I want to thank all the organizers for the inspiration of organizing the event and the hospitality of the Greek mission this weekend. On our visit to Istanbul will have the opportunity and honor to visit the Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarchate and the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew in which our athletes will deliver a special gift "

Nick Gkountoulaσ statement: "This is a very good initiative. It is essentially a sports festival and not only a competition race for the National Rowing team. Indeed such move by the Turkish side to develop a sport that ii is not popular is very important of course, beyond the relations of the two countries.

We the athletes we will enjoy doubly to take part in this event. That's because it is a very nice experience in a city that all Greeks are emotionally attached to her, but because my generation will participate for the first time in 8 oared  international race. And a race with 8oared  is always a challenge. Especially when you play with the colors of the national team. "
